Flat pack:
I suggested recently on D’log that artists could prototype a mass-market Ikea-like “flat-pack” for the retro-fitting of the exterior of older terraced houses, as R&D for the forthcoming Housing Market Renewal Area (HMRA) action. Now, in an odd syncronicity, I hear of an artists’ group called FlatPack001 who designed a special outfit for Warwickshire artist Jo Roberts to use. Jo’s spent most of this year mapping the creative activity of communities in South Warwickshire. Her special ‘Cartographer’ suit is effectively a portable/wearable art exhibition & recording unit rolled into one.
